No it does not make it public domain but the appropriate CC license gives pretty much the same rights. Which fulfills the objective of letting anybody use, sell or modify it. Sure there are some minor differences but if you want to argue semantics find Video Cellar.

I read that video celler is a professor of law in Australia? My professors are American and Canadian, so of course I would welcome an informed discussion with a law professor from another country.
The more I understand about Intellectual Property and the Copyrights that apply the better.

If memory serves me correctly, VideoCellar is a history teacher who is an IP Law hobbyist

Well on that note, should you or I find ourselves in a court room facing charges of copyright infringement, a history teacher who's an IP (Intellectual Property?) hobbyist won't be of much use.

I agree with you. But given the lack of IP (intellectual property lawyers) posting, VideoCellar's contributions are more often than not very useful. In my opinion he also tends to err on the conservative side, which could help prevent people from landing in court.
